Directions

  1. For chicken, either use leftover chicken, purchase a rotisserie chicken and shred it, or blanch 1 pound of chicken breasts in lightly salted, barely simmering water, until cooked through (12-15 minutes) and then let cool and shred.
  2. To start soup, add coconut oil to a large sturdy pot over medium heat. Once coconut oil is melted and hot, add onions and peppers and cook for a few minutes until soft.
  3. Add garlic, ginger, and curry paste (green non-spicy is my preferred one for this soup). Cook for one minute.
  4. Add shredded carrot, coconut milk, and chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken the soup.
  5. Add shredded chicken and peas and turn heat down to low. Cook for a few minutes to combine flavors. Taste soup and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Right before serving, add 1 package of ramen noodles to the soup (discard flavor packet).
  7. When noodles are cooked, serve the soup garnished with limes and fresh cilantro.

Optionally, if your kids or you are really into noodles, you can add a second packet of ramen, but it will really soak up a lot of liquid and you’ll be left with more of a noodle dish than a soup. Both are good though!
